Encouraging a sense of belonging at work among employees can lead to higher retention, engagement, and profits. One way for leaders to achieve this is by leveraging pride. When workers feel connected to their organization’s core values and mission, this pride can drive them to greater success. Therefore by using internal communication to express the company’s vision, leaders can help their team members feel connected to their work, team, and overall organization.
On this episode of the Survive & Thrive podcast, host Jennifer Ayres speaks on how leaders can cultivate connections between their workers and the organization’s mission. She provides ways that business leaders can communicate their organizational values and intentions to their team members to foster “belonging” within the workplace. In addition, leaders who use their company’s core vision can provide their staff with a sense of purpose, leading to increased productivity and engagement.
